What is Black Friday?

Black Friday is the Friday after Thanksgiving in the US, when many brands and stores have a huge sale.

It’s a tradition that has caught on globally and grown over the years.

The Monday after Black Friday has also been coined Cyber Monday, as an extension of Black Friday focusing on online shopping.

Some brands have started using the whole week of Black Friday through to Cyber Monday as a sale week, whilst others use the entire month of November.

Pros and Cons of Black Friday

It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of sales, and sales are often labelled as a consumerism trap. It’s definitely important to be mindful of how much you’re purchasing, therefore how much you’re spending, and whether you really need the items.

That said, Black Friday is a fantastic time to do some Christmas shopping… Or shopping for any occasion, really!

How to Navigate Black Friday Sales Healthily

In order to not get overwhelmed by the Black Friday sales, the most important things are to:

  1. Build your wish list in advance so you know exactly what to look for
    • Don’t allow yourself to get overwhelmed scrolling through pages and pages of products you don’t really want or need, just because you see discounts
  2. Similarly, make a Christmas or occasion gifting list
    • Make a note of each individual you intend to by a gift for and list potential items to keep an eye out for in the sales and where to find them
  3. Only sign up to email notifications from brands and retailers you definitely intend to buy from
    • Don’t get trapped into signing up for every mailing list that pops up – sale emails are very hard to resist!
    • Minimise the amount of websites and shops you visit
  4. Set a budget
    • Don’t overspend. Material items are not worth that kind of stress

  1. Great products! Beauty is in the skin! Take care of it, oil it, clean it, scrub it, perfume it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you’ll feel like a queen. Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face it’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart, and a pretty soul.

  2. Black Friday sales are quite new in my country, but they are a nice chance to buy ahead of Christmas and saving up some money. Two years ago I actually bought many things during the Black Friday sale, but last year was a total different story and didn’t buy anything.

    • I lose interest in sales when they start so early and keep changing throughout the whole month! It’s too much. I envy you having the discipline to not buy anything this time around 🙂

    • You sound prepared and disciplined! Haha. I hope I will learn from my mistakes last year and not go so crazy this time. I only plan to scout for Christmas gifts! Hope you manage to bag some goodies 🙂

  3. I like to prepared in advance for the sales. It’s only until recently that the U.K. has started Black Friday sales. I agree best to prepare a wish list in advance so you don’t end up spending on anything unnecessary

    • Yes! Preparation is key. I didn’t prepare for Black Friday last year, and ended up buying so much unnecessary stuff. I hope you manage to get everything on your wish list! x
